OK, that's fair.

But it's also like saying a European Soccer team going up against an MLS team.

Sure, they've been playing together for years, but NEVER at the ultimate NBA level.

I strongly believe that international teams like Argentina and Spain are very good competition and the Dream Team NEVER faced anything like that.

Why don't they just skip to the award ceremony? [/QUOTE]

anything can happen in the olympic format of 1 game see 1972
also in 2008 they beat spain by 37 earlier,
but in the gold medal game were only up by 2 late in the 4th..
few missed shots here and there late, and a few that fall for spain,and spain wins the gold medal..
